Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt Veeder gives up scents of crushed red and black plums, fresh blackcurrants and blackberry compote with touches of garrigue, lavender, underbrush and bay leaves. The medium to full-bodied palate sports wonderful intensity and tension, with a very firm, grainy frame and beautiful freshness supporting the floral and earth-inspired layers through the long finish.
